Continuing our live coverage of Azure Data Fest Fall 2019 in Reston is this session by Frank La Vigne.

Neural Networks from the Ground Up

Neural networks are an essential element of many advanced artificial intelligence (AI) solutions. However, few people understand the core mathematical or structural underpinnings of this concept.

In this session, learn the basic structure of neural networks and how to build out a simple neural network from scratch with Python.

This was recorded live at the Azure Data Fest in Reston, VA on Oct 11, 2019. You can watch the entire live stream here: http://franksworld.com/2019/10/11/azure-data-fest-reston-live-stream/

Last night was the Global AI Night and it was a pleasure and an honor to speak at the one in DC. The venue was awesome and the crowd was great!

Here are a sampling of tweets. I even did a live stream after the event.

And then, I had to put on my unicorn hat to make sure the neural network learned properly. After all, Data Scientists are part unicorn. 😉

On Friday, the first ever Azure AI Fest was held in Reston, VA.  Data Driven streamed the keynote presentation live and was a sponsor.

So, enjoy the audio of the keynote address by Ashish Jaiman, a former colleague and manager, who now works in the Democracy and Cybersecurity team at Microsoft.

If you’ve not heard the news, the first ever Azure AI Fest is happening in Reston this Friday and we are super excited to announce that Data Driven will be the official media sponsor. As such, we’ll be live streaming the keynote on our Facebook page.

Yesterday, I recorded a data point at the Frank’s World Monument in Germantown, MD. (It’s not actually called that, but I can dream.)

The vent is real. The sign is not. ;)

 


I’ll be speaking at the first ever Reston AI Fest on Sept 7, 2018 in Reston, VA. In the morning, I will deliver a session on the different kinds of machine learning and, in the afternoon, I will co-proctor a lab that goes th

rough the four stages of an predictive modeling project.
